CABBAGE IS GOOD FOR YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
CABBAGE IS GOOD FOR YOU.' The common cabbage is an excel-, lent food. So thought the people of Ancient Egypt, who always ate it for breakfast, and even raised altars to the vegetable. It was introduced into England by.. the Romans. The ancients believed the cabbage, to be a cure for all sorts of illnesses,; and it certainly has high nutritive: qualities. It contains mineral salts, calcium'' and iron, and if served in the right" way it not only nourishes the body- ' but destroys injurious acids in the blood tissues. If prepared in salad form, the cab bage will lose none of its nourish- - inent; but it retains a large amount even if plain boiled.

FAMOUS FOR HER HAIR. PICTURE FILM ARTIST TELLS . HOW TO RETAIN IT. I Miss Rosa Norma, in a recent Inter view in Melbourne, made the follow I ing statement:-"Any lady or gentle I man can restore their hair to its na Itural color should it be Jading, falling or becoming streaked with grey, and promote a vigorous growth with this I simple recipe, which they can mix at home:'-Take lVioz. of Rejuveni j Compound, to which add loz. of Bay Rum, shaking well together, and then add'enough water to make up to lOoz. (14 pint).. You will bo more than surprised at the gratifying results ob tained by its use. It is not a dye, and there is consequently no fear of dis colored pillows from its rubbing oft during sleep. It promotes a vigorous growth of air, destroys dandruff, and eradicates eruptions and scalp hu mors. It makes the hair beautifully soft and glossy, and has all the charm of being inexpensive. Almost every chemist has these simple ingredients in stock, or can easily get them for you fro...
A Doubtful Compliment. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
A Doubtful Compliment. She was a nervous old thing, spend ing a day in the country. He was the village clergyman. She was looking over the 'old cliurch. He was sorting the choir music in the vestry. Hearing some one walking down the aisle, he went out and saluted-the srtanger. "Good-morning, madam!" quoth he. "Looking at our old church? PerliapB you will allow me to show you around?" Good gracious! She was quite flus tered, and could only nod her bonnet . at liim. Ho pointed out where Cromwell had i tied bis horse up, and all the other historic sights of the little church, coming finally to a fine brass put up to perpetuate the memory of a for mer vicar. "Well, now, isn't it lovely?" ex claimed the old lady, driven at last in to saying something. "And I hope, sir, it will not be long before there will be something equally ueautlful put up with your name on it!" Many girls would have a much jol lier time of it if they did not jump to the conclusion that/every man who talks prettily t...
Very Well. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
Very Well. Walking along a road in the remote West of" Ireland, two tourists were passing one of the cottages-or, as they are better known in the coun try, "cabins"-i-o£ the peasantry. This particular "cabin" was even a more than usually dilapidated specimen of its class, and the chimney, consisting mainly of the remains of an old top hat, presented a comical, if pathetic, appearance. T-ipping his friend a wink, one of the tourists accosted a y-outh who was sitting contentedly on a fence. "I say, my boy," he said, "does that chimney draw well?" "Shure, thin, it does," was the prompt reply; "it draws the notice o' ivery fool that passes by!"
Their Opinion. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
Their Opinion. A short time ago three young giris from rural Norfolk, who were enjoy ing a trip to a large provincial town for tlie first time, eventually found themselves inside a restaurant, and they decided to have tea, bread-and butter, jam and cake. They were J soon comfortably making the best of I a square meal, but noticed that the tea was not forthcoming. Having finished the food, they called him that he had not brought the tea, the waiter's attention, and reminded i as ordered. He simply lifted t'ne cosy J off the teapot, and showed it to them, I whereupon one of them remarked: "The wretch! Fancy hiding the tea pot!"
Murder Below Stairs. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
Murder Below Staii I know they talk of Hymen's flame, Or else his lighted torch, In valentines, but all the same, Why should my mutton scorch? Why should my humble piece of steak Be blackened as a shoe? Why'glass and china daily break? Then, what am I to do? Why poison me with greasy soup, Or Uoury melted butter? A man must be a nincompoop Who can't his feelings utter. Untastc-d dinners daily go Just through the railings, look! There's been a murder down below Young Cupid's shot my cook!

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAM£ i No. XVII. EVERY MAN AND WOMAN'S DUTY What willi politics and our ordin ary affairs of life, the volunteering campaign continues to drag. There has not been a week since it began with the new year that has achieved any burst -of success, while there have been many weeks during which the results have been very poor indeed. This is an unfortunate state of af fairs for which those who are con ducting the campaign certainly can not be held responsible. In Mr. D. Mackinnon, M.L.A., the Director-Gen eral, we have a gentleman filled with enthusiasm for the cause, who has j devoted his whole time and abun dant energies in an honorary capa city to the work. He is constantly moving about the Commonwealth en deavoring to evoke among the peo ple some of the enthusiasm which he himself feels. In al! the States there are General Organising Committees composed of patriotic gentlemen who are also sacrificing their wliole time and ability to the one object of try ing to mak...

PUBLICAN'S EPITAPH. That a tombstone should be erected above the grave, bearing: the follow ing words, was the Instruction of the late Mr. John Goodman, of 29 Stog ton-road, Sutton, Surrey, and former ly of Wandsworth, publican: Farewell, vain Earth, I've had enough of thee, And now am careless what thou say'st of me, Thy smiles I car'st not, nor thy frowns I fear. My care is past, my head lies quiet here. What faults you see in me take care . to shun, And look at home, enough is to be done. The testator, who left £2G,553, also directed that "no females should fol low his remains to the grave." The Crocodile: What's become of the laughing hyena? The Lion: He happened to come along where I was taking a nap in the shade, and he thought I was dead, and-well, he hasn't had anything to laugh at since!" A patient in a hospital had to be fed on a daily diet of egg and port wine. When asked by the physician how he liked it, he replied: "It would be all right, doctor, if the egg was as new a...
His First Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
His First Mistake. One of the first tasks they set the | new curate, who was handicapped by i youth and inexperience, was to in- j vestigate the bona-fides of a "widow woman" who had applied to the J church for help. He departed ner-. vously ou his errand and knocked, as I ill-luck would have it, at the wrong . door. "How long lias your poor husband been dead, my good woman? What' number of children have you? Are I any of them working? If so, what1 amount of money are they earning I altogether?" were the questions he 1 fired, like shots from a revolver, at the slatternly woman who answered his summons. "I presume I am ad-1 dressing Mrs. Harriet Smith?" he added, noticing, with alarm, that she looked angry. 'No, you ain't," answered the wo man, snappishly. "My name is Se- j lina Jackson, my bairns go to school, and my 'usband's doin' what is neces sary to a plateful of rump steak and , onions at this very moment. Would you like to know anything else? j Where I was born? When I was ( ...
In a Spare Room. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
In a Spare Room. j By Ashley Sterne. I recently spent a nlglit in a friend's spare room, and I now know ?why it is so called. It's because it can be easily spared. Nobody else in the house wants tt. It is situated at the top of five flights of stairs right under the roof, close to the Zep pelins. In summer it has ihe tem perature of an orchid-house; in winter that of an Alpine crevasse. The ceiling, too, slopes ill several different directions all at once, with the result that tlie casual visitor, unac quainted with its architectural vagar ies,- repairing to bed by the light of a wan and sickly candle, belabors his head against it, and more often than not spends the night insensible upon the floor. However, the coiling of the room 1 occupied did not Happen to slope very awkwardly on the night I was there, and I put my candlestick on the mantelpiece anu had walked thenco nearly into the centra of the room before I fell flat on my back. The cause of this was one of thoso ridiculous pa...

"And all this is to be yours some day, you young rascal!" he exclaimed fondly, as he set him on his shoulder. "I wonder what he will "do with it, Cicely." Cicely smiled.
